Yesterday afternoon, as a little activity for our Colonial Life Unit Study
, and with Thanksgiving coming up this Thursday, the girls spent a little time in the kitchen making Edible Indian Corn
. It was a great recipe for them to make (mostly on their own) and they had so much fun!
Edible Indian Corn
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- 4 cups of mini marshmallows
- 5 cups of puffed corn cereal (we used Honey Kix)
- 1 1/3 cups diced dried fruit (we used raisins and cranberries)
- Popsicle sticks
- Fruit leather
In a large pot, melt butter and mini marshmallows over low heat. This takes about 5 minutes.
Remove the mixture from the stove and use a wooden spoon to stir in puffed corn cereal and diced dried fruit. Allow the mixture to cool for about 10 minutes.
Using buttered hands, shape each treat by pressing 1/3 cup of the mixture around a Popsicle stick.
Add fruit leather husks to the bottom of the ear, slightly moistening them to help them stick if needed.
Makes approximately 15 treats.
What Thanksgiving Treats have you been making?
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
